That pretty much sums up our family right now. Friday morning sissy called me and asked me how I was feeling. I told her Thursday night I felt a little weird in my throat but other than that I felt great. She said she had felt the same thing, as did Josh. I told her that it was probably just allergies as when we get sick it always starts with just one of us and then it trickles down until all 8 of us have had it. The fact that three of us felt it at the same time was just due to allergies or the 30 degree temperature drop.
Asa got it first. He was sick all day Saturday with a fever. Yesterday sissy came over and was feeling pretty good. This morning mom called me to see how I was feeling. Uh oh. Monday is chemo day. Mom and Joshua always go with sissy to chemo. I told mom I felt great. Turns out half of us were sick (mom, papa, Asa) and the other half were ok (sissy, Joshua, Norm, Valentina, me) with Asa breaking over to the other side of not being sick anymore. So I got to take sissy to chemo today while mom stayed home with Valentina (we didn't want to cross contaminate the kiddos) and Josh had Asa. Papa went to Goldendale. After I got home, Valentina started to feel wonky (she told me, I love that she uses the word wonky) and now I'm starting to feel a bit odd. Great. Sissy can NOT get sick or she has to go to the hospital.
Josh's dad and his wife left Saturday and I know that sissy pushed herself too much while they were here. I told her that she just can't have any more company until at least a month AFTER she is DONE with chemo. She just tries to go and go but she can't. She feels obligated to do that whenever anyone comes in from out of town and normally that's fine. Right now it is NOT fine. If I need to, I will get all "sissy bear" on her.
Valentina is already in bed, she went to sleep at 5:30 pm and I think I'm headed that way soon. I can't afford to get sick. I've been taking eichinacea, golden seal and vitamin C like crazy. We'll see.
